East Bay


CEF NorCal­ East Bay is comprised of the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, encompassing two counties: Alameda and Contra Costa.

We serve a population of over 2.5 million people, of which more than 600,000 are children and youth. The American Communities Survey reveals that approximately 80% of the children within the East Bay do not attend church.


The staff and volunteers of CEF NorCal East Bay serve as missionaries to the East Bay community, proclaiming the message of God’s love everywhere. Our purpose is to evangelize, disciple and connect children and their families with a local church for Christian living. We work with churches, schools and communities to achieve this goal.


“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matt 28: 19, 20
